Sweet Success

Onlookers at Johnson Beach in Guerneville witnessed a once-in-a-lifetime event today, as The Red Couch accomplished a raft of firsts: first time on the water, first maneuvering test, first stability and transportability tests...

The craft performed admirably! 

Assembly required only minor application of force, and stability fore and aft proved to be spot-on. The rudder will be rebuilt to provide sufficient control in high-wind conditions.

A previously implicit goal was also revealed today: The Red Couch brought smiles to everyone who saw it.
